Solid State Logic Duende Native Essentials Bundle Details

The SSL Duende Native Essentials Plug-in Bundle is a collection of audio processing tools which bring professional audio quality, sophistication and benchmark performance within reach of all DAW users. Duende plug-ins provide the superior precision, advanced feature set and legendary tonal characteristics of SSL console products in affordable VST/AU/RTAS plug-in form.

The Duende Native Channel plug-in is ported from the C200 console and includes separate high and low pass filters, a four band parametric equalizer, an independent compressor/limiter and gate/expander as well as an output gain adjustment knob.

Classic SSL Console Channel Strip Plug-In Features

SSL Stereo Buss Compressor

The centre section compressor from SSL"?s 1980"?s G Series analogue console is an audio production legend. It is the secret behind countless classic recordings. It is a simple unit with a simple purpose; it makes complete mixes sound bigger, with more power, punch and drive. It brings cohesion and strength to your mix without compromising clarity.

"Sticks your mix like audio glue." - That's how we often hear the SSL Stereo Bus Compressor described, along with - "You strap it across your mix - and it sounds like a record." SSL could wax lyrical about the technology - but hey, you already know how great this thing sounds - you've heard it on countless hit records from the last three decades.

The Duende Bus Compressor brings the dual benefits of spectacular audio performance with a universally acclaimed compressor characteristic. Taking its sonic cues from the bus compressor found in the Solid State Logic SL 4000 G Series console, the world's most successful studio production console, the plug-in delivers a sound quality that has produced hundreds of best selling recordings.

Duende Native plugins are Top-Notch, Game-Changers August 3, 2011
Reviewer: Halbert Austin  
The duende Native plugins are special. SSL has released the first Native compressors that i'm fully sold on. These are true high quality professional tools for ITB Music Production. The Native Platform has been in dire need of these plugins, thank God they're here!

  I bought the SSL Buss comp and Channelstrip bundle from Front End Audio and i bought Drumstrip directly from SSL. The compressors have a smoothness, depth, punchiness and openess to them that other Native compressors and UAD don't have (in part or full). When used at 96khz samplerate the Duende Plugins are a game changer for computer music. These plugins algorithms make modern computers extremely powerful and dangerous. Most of the Duende plugins have zero-latency wich can keep your computer at a high level performance wise also.Try the demos at SSL website. Glad these plugins can be used without a dongle. I plan to buy X-Comp and X-EQ as well, i'm sold on the SSL brand and believe they are the best at what they do.

step it up SSL! September 7, 2010
Reviewer: christopher smith from nashville, TN United States  
I'm writing this review comparing this to the SSL Waves bundle since I own both. Both cost around the same but you can catch Waves SSL bundle on sale at times making it cheaper.

Both come with the channel strip and bus compressor, however the duende mini out the box allows 16 tracks of use. If you need more you will need to pay $400 for the 32 channel upgrade.

As for looks, I think the Waves bundle is sleeker as has a better UI. Duende offers NO, I repeat NO presets, and command clicking of a knob will set it back to unity.

As far as the channel strip, I perfer Waves since it has presets. As far as the bus compressor I perfer the Duende.

If I had to choose I would go with the Waves. Waves SSL let you apply it to as many tracks as your computer can handle, you get presets, a better looking UI, and the Waves comes with 2 different type of SSL channels.
